Select from our range of quality products. We have over 120 years of experience so you can be assured of the best advice when it comes to choosing your meat for any recipe you are going to prepare.
Our top-selling bacon is Ashley’s bacon which is a dry-cured, rindless, short-back bacon. This style of bacon contains no added water. The salt and cure (which includes a small amount of Demerara sugar) is rubbed into the meat and left for five days to finish the curing process. When complete the bacon is washed to remove any excess cure and is then ready to eat. Another popular bacon is Old Bill’s, a middle-cut bacon which has both back and streaky sections in one rasher. Again, this is a dry-cured bacon which has no added water but it has the rind left on. This means that the curing process takes seven days, a little longer that Ashley’s, but the higher fat content gives this bacon a taste of its own.
Our beef is locally sourced and handpicked to ensure the highest quality. All of our beef including best roasting joints, sirloin, hip bone and fore rib is hung for a minimum of twenty-one days. Whether you prefer T bone, sirloin, rump or fillet our steaks are second to none and can be cut to any size to suit your requirements.

A popular line is pre-prepared stir fry mix which contains onion, sweet pepper, mushrooms and chicken in either a Chinese style or tikka sauce. As an alternative to a traditional roast Ashley prepares a selection of meat cushions such as Italian style chicken and minty lamb. Each chicken cushion consists of boneless leg meat wrapped around pork sausage meat flavoured with Italian seasoning.
Our mouth-watering locally sourced lamb is of the highest quality. Apart from the standard roasting joints, we have traditional and Barnsley chops, rack of lamb, guard of honour, minty lamb riblets and lamb cushions. The lamb cushion is a rolled boneless shoulder of lamb which has had the excess fat removed and has been flavoured with mint sauce.
